On January 1, 2022, the Whole Person Care Pilot Program transitioned to a new Medi-Cal initiative called California Advancing and Innovating Medi-Cal (CalAIM). CalAIM seeks to improve the quality of life and health outcomes of California’s most vulnerable persons by offering eligible CalOptima Members Enhanced Care Management (ECM) and Community Supports Services. These services – care coordination, case management, recuperative care and housing supportive services that were available under WPC, are still available through CalOptima under CalAIM for eligible Medi-Cal Members.
As part of this transition, the Health Care Agency and former lead organization for the Whole Person Care Pilot Program, has also become a provider of ECM and Community Supports Services for CalOptima under CalAIM. We are currently working on updating our website with the latest information, educational materials regarding the program and services, as well as referral forms and process. Additionally, the WPC team is still here to help everyone through the transition of WPC to CalAIM, and HCA to CalAIM provider for CalOptima.
